The movement of the Senior Class
for an "Ivy Day" Is to be commended.
Such exercises not only create spirit
and tradition but they also result in
the improvement of the campus.
The Senior girls have outwitted the
boys of that class. It now looks as
though the masculine half of the class
of 1901 will wear gowns at the Com
mencement exercises in June.
The baseball season opens today.
Everyone can now show his spirit by
Jj&Uing out and cheering for tho team.
Under the coaching of Booth, we have
the promise of one of the best college
teams in ti:e central wcp'c.
It has been suggested by the mili
tary department tha: the cadets be
equipped with campaign hats and leg
gings before going to camp. These
with the white ducks which will soon
bA worn will give the battalion a de
cidedly unique and pleasing appear
ance. A large number of tho battalion
are in favor of the new movement and
it will be pushed in the next few days.
A surprising display of disloyalty
occurred at the basket ball game on
last Thursday evening. A number of
university students occupying promi
nent seats took up the cause of tho
high school boys rooting most sys.
tomatlcally for them. Such things as
this discourage the team and throw
cold water upon the enthusiasm of the
crowd. It seems to us that college stu
dents should be able to lay aside all
prejudices and work for the common
cause, namely the advancement of
thqir Alma Mater.
for tho final struggle to the end of this
year. Tho early spring days offer tho
most temptations to the average stu
dent. Then it is that one has to watch
himself and guard against the time
they can squander, enjoying nature
As a matter of fact some of the hard
est work seem.: to show itself at the
time when tlK student can the least
combat against It. It therefore be
hooves the "undcrgrad" to get down
bone for tho next few weeks.
The Nebraska Teacher for April con
tains the following editorial upon the
"Governor Dietrich has placed him
self in the attitude of extreme and un
reasonable opposition to the educa
tional Interests of the stnte. By ,'ils
vetoes, apparently the result of preju
dice rather than consideration, ho con
tributes a serious handicap to the state
normal at Peru and the State univer
sity at Lincoln. He is cerralnly taking
a serious responsibility upon himself,
when he puts himself in opposition to
a settled policy of the state. The fact
that he has reversed tho almost unani
mous expression of both parties in the
legislature, the recommendation of ed
ucational organizations and the un
doubted sentiment of tho state will
make It very dlfflcult to defeud his action."
The Y. M. C. A. is now making its
annual spring canvass for funds for
next year. Blanks are out, ready to
be filled out by the contributor Indi
cating the amount subscribed and when
payable. The association is a decid
edly aggressive factor In the univer
sity life and as such needs a certain
amount of funds to carry on lt enter
prises. In the past tho association has
met with tho hearty support It (eserves
and good results aro expected from tho
The action of Governor Dietrich in
vetoing a part of the university appro
priation will cause many hardships.
All chance for advancement during
tho next two years Is cut off. The
governor evidently entered upon tho
duties of his office with a firm de
termination to cut down appropria
tions. The Peru Normal bill was the
first victim of "His Excellency's" strict
economy. When the general appro
priation went before him for consid
eration, he stated his determination
to veto the action for a supreme court
commission. The denunciations of an
enraged legal profession proved so
strong that a reconsideration followed.
However, according to the governor's
idea retrenchment in expenditures
must be carried out.
Again, the educational facilities of
the state had to suffer. The funds for
the university were cut $90,500. The
school system of Nebraska Is excellent
and fast outstripping in ranks, tho sys
tems of other western states. Our uni
versity Is the crowning feature of It
all. The strictest economy has been
obsorved by every one during the past
biennium. No one can urge oxtrava
gance, yet the Executive of the state
lias seen fit to cut off nearly one-sixth
of our income.
The excuse given by the governor
was that the special levy for tho uni
versity would not be sufficient to pro
vido funds for tho appropriations.
Previous records show that the spec
ial levy will raise several thousand
j moro than the appropriatlpn called for.

of the opinion that tho Governor was
rather hasty In his decision. Time
only can tell how much injury to this
institution his action will bring about.
Tho beginning of the second half of
this semester is gone and now the
munificent holidnys which aro grant

passed, and every one is nerved up
There is nothing which a collego stu
dent Is so prone to neglect as physical
exercise. Students often complain
that they aro unable ' to concentrate
their minds on the subject in hand,
that thoy are unable to read or study
for any length of timo without becom
ing drowsy; othcia are troubled with
insomnia. All these disorders aro tho
results of tho lack of exercise.
Tho collego curriculum Is usually
so arranged as to give the student
ample time for physical exorcise, but
It Is too often the case that this time
Is used In pursuing extra studies. This
may be done for a time by a student
who is strong physically without seri
ously Impairing his health, but it can
not be indulged in without seriouB con
sequences during the time required
to complete a college course. At tho
end of tho second year the student is
usually obliged to leave school on ac
count of ill health.
The student should follow a sys
tematic course of physical exercise In
the same manner as a systematic
course of study Ms pursued. There Is
no better time for physical exercise
than the hour following the closing
of recitations. The student is then
mentally tired. He has been exercis
ing his brain during the day and, con
sequently, there has been an excessive
flow of blood to that organ.
The blood must again be brought
into active circulation, and In order to
bring this about, It Is necessary that
active exercise be engaged In. Let the
student engage for one hour every day,
Immediately after the last recitation
period. In club drill, dumb-bell exer
cises, running and other outdoor sports,
breathing exercises,etc,;. and ho will
find that he will not only be nble to
master his lessons in a shorter time,
but he will sleep well and Instead of
rising in the morning with a dull,
heavy feeling In the region of the
brain, he will awaken refreshened,
and thus be in better physical and
mental condition for the work of the
A class In physical culture and cal
isthenics has been organized but the
students have not manifested the in
terest tha: is necessary in order to
make the work a complete success.
It is the intention of the director to
vary the exercises form time to time
by giving drills in the open air dur
ing the next term of school. We trust
that a large number of students will
enroll in this class and thus secure
tho benefit of it. l; proper physical
exercises were engaged In by the stu
dentsgenerally, there would bo a less
number of consumptives, and their
doctor bills would diminish greatly.
